A weekend at The Language Show

Continued professional development in progress




This time last year, I was heading to London to spend three days at the Language Show. It was a great occasion to do Christmas shopping in London and catch up with all friends, which is a bonus. But, first and foremost, it was an occasion to reflect on my practice as a teacher and to find ways to improve it.


For obvious reasons, I can't go to London this year and the Show won't take place in its usual form. I was thrilled when I received the news that it would happen online.


I must admit that I got a little bit carried away as I was booking my space for various events.
